Normally I don't worry that much about government "overreach" but that decision was pretty much pants on head stupid.  Glad they lied and then backed down.  Is this an impeachable offense?  I bet they try to impeach over this "lie".  CheseBama was totally behind this.

Emposter: Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: lostcat: Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: Having just eaten some English Royal Stilton from Trader Joes, I'm convinced it was aged not on wood but on a pile of dog turds.

People are slowly starting to realize that Trader Joe's brand food is just slightly above mediocre.

They have good snacks.  Finger food stuff, appetizers.  And cheap wine.

Pretty much the only thing I buy there (again, and again, and again, and again...)

There are a few things I can find no where else.  prax jr. eats these by the jarful (except when his little sister has been by and taken all the garlic out, eaten them and put the olives back in...)

The Numbers: JayCab: Sane prediction: we'll eventually end up with a warning label placed on cheese aged on wood, allowing for consumers to make an informed and educated choice in their purchases.

Likely prediction: the FDA, at the behest of Kraft, et al, will put these rules forward again, in a much more stealthy manner, leading the public to ignore it because they thought "we already heard this news story".

Quite possibly. Some form of licensing system requiring manufacturers to get a permit to age cheese on wood boards would be my guess. Make the permit conditions onerous enough small producers struggle to comply (in the name of 'public safety' of course) and voila, you've heavily stacked the system in favor of Big Cheese and earned that cushy board position that'll be waiting for you.


fark that.  it's going to be passed by congress.  congress will discuss a bill, titled Patriotic United States Safe Youth Freedom American Consumer and Trade Act, designed to save children and consumers from the dangers of banks, by removing any requirements for the filing of foreclosure proceedings, and on the 11th hour of debate, paragraph 1476(r)(1)(A)(III)(93)(e) will be added, providing: none shall cheese age on wood.

gweilo8888: So you're telling me that the US fermented cow nipple solids industry is still able to make its festering products on bacteria-rich ligneous wafers? And that's a victory for the US public?

Well, OK then. Just so we're clear on that.


Did you know meat is actually dead animals?!

Hey, now.  It's Trader Joe's.  It's seasonal artisan dog turds, from an obscure breed of Swiss mountain dog.
